>> it's going to be that smallest tip that's going to close that case. it's going to be i saw a vehicle, i saw a person, a small description. i know that he was arguing with this guy. whatever the information is, we need that information to be brought forward because we're going to investigate all of it. >> a parent with the fashion club that ross loved so much says he was bullied l.a. year, but she thought it was -- last year, but she thought it was over. many wonder tonight if perhaps it wasn't. >> we talked to security about it and other than that i didn't hear anything else about him being bullied. so i asked in the hallway several times, marckel, anybody messing with you? no. i'm okay. >> pros is the 2nd prince george's county student to i do a horrific death in the last -- to die a horrific death in the last month. amber stanley was shot in her bed. detectives have found no connection. >> there is absolutely no established link to the young lady that was killed in kettering. >> police promise stepped up patrols both before and after school to help students feel

each other. new developments in the deadly consulate attack in libya. several men are under arrest in connection with the attack on the u.s. embassy in benghazi and the u.s. government is trying to distance itself from a controversial anti-islam film that started it all. fox 5's will thomas is here now. >> right now we don't know if these are prime suspects in custody or people who may have some sort of knowledge about who is behind the consulate attack, an attack described by one u.s. intel official as a coordinated military style operation. the violence continues in nearly a dozen separate locations all across the middle east. these are anti-american protests in response to a film in los where it was made that mocks the islam prophet muhammad. >> there is no justification, none at all, for responding to this video with violence. >> so far it seems no one is listening to secretary clinton.
in yemen protesters are trying to destroy the u.s. embassy. cars were torched, windows broken. this time the embassy was prepared, vac waiting everyone in advance -- evacuating everyone in advance, all of this response to the release of the video called innocence of muslims depicting the prophet muhammad as a fraud and madman. secretary clinton is trying to distance the u.s. government from this controversial film. >> it appears to have a deeply cynical purpose, to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage. >> reporter: the rage is evident in cairo. once again a u.s. embassy targeted by protesters. more than 200 people were overcome by tear gas as egyptian security forces pushed back the angry mob. in response president obama ordered increased security at all u.s. missions around the world including sending marriages to libya after the
deadly -- marines to libya after the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. militants used guns and rocket propelled grenades to set fire to the consulate. four americans were killed including the u.s. ambassador to libya chris stevens and two former navy seals working private security trying to protect the bams dow. glenn doherty seen in these -- ambassador, glenn doherty seen in these photos and tyrone woods, the second navy seal. a fourth american killed shaun smith, was an air force veteran who worked as an information management specialist for the state department. at a campaign event thursday president obama said the militants involved in the consulate attack will be brought to justice. >> to all those who would do us harm, no act of terror will go unpunished. it will not dim the light of the values that we proudly present to the rest of the world. >> ironically in at least half
the locations in the middle east where anti-american protests have broken out the united states has actually helped push democracy including libya. as for that controversial film made in los angeles, reports are now surfacing the actors were told it was an arabian desert adventure and some of the most controversial lines mocking the prophet muhammad were later dubbed in. learning more about the u.s. ambassador to libya who died in tuesday's attack in the consulate, a doctor who treated him said chris stevens died from asphyxiation from smoke in halls. stevens was reportedly killed -- inhalation. stevens was reportedly killed while trying to save members of his staff. tonight those who knew him are speaking out. >> my understanding is the reason he was killed is that he went back in to go save his people, his employees. >> three other americans were also killed in the attack. a baltimore county judge postponed a bail hearing for a teenager charged with shooting a fellow student the first day
of class. the attorney for 15-year-old robert gladden jr. requested the delay saying the teen had been on suicide watch while being treated at a psychiatric hospital. during a news conference today gland's attorney said prior to the shooting the -- gladden's attorney said prior to the shooting the teen wrote a text saying it would be the last day of his life. >> acting out in a terrible fashion in the hopes that somebody other than him would pull the trigger on him and he would perish. i think he expected and desired to be killed. as sad as that is, i think that's the reality of this case. >> the judge granted the delay pending a mental health assessment. gladden is accused of opening fire in the cafeteria at harry hall high school. one of the bullets hit student daniel borowy in the back. borowy is expected to be okay. tomorrow back in the hot seat for pepco. the maryland public service commission began the hearing today quizzing the utilities on
whether they were prepared with adequate staffing. pepco's representative had this response. >> our performance was comparable to other utilities around us. we reached out, brought in mutual assistance, used our own resources, was immediately an all hands event for us. >> the public service commissioners say one question they're asking all utilities is whether it's reasonable to expect electricity to be restored in 24 hours after major event. the derecho storm took down trees and power lines in 11 state and d.c., left nearly 4 million customers in the dark. let's go outside right now. it's been an absolutely gorgeous week weatherwise, still nice out there tonight. here's a live look. what can we expect the rest of this workweek? sue palka is in the weather center with the details. >> it looks like we'll finish up on another high note, although tomorrow a frontal boundary is going to approach. it will increase the clouds in the afternoon. we might get a couple sprinkles
but mostly after the sun goes down tomorrow. this is the high temperature today 81 degrees, absolutely average for this time of year and yes, it has been a spectacular week. what we are seeing behind the front that is going to come in our direction is a pretty significant temperature drop. let me show you where that front is now. you can see it's gone through chicago. their high was 71. st. louis it was 88 degrees. so a pretty good drop behind that front. it will drop our temperatures for the weekend back into the 70s, but we're thinking this front which does have some moisture with it is mostly going to come flue on the dry side. you can see it's -- through on the dry side. you can see it's collecting moisture on the edge of it from chicago west of st. louis. we'll see a few high clouds coming in here, but for the balance of this overnight it looks like we'll be talking about mostly clear skies. so a spotty shower or some sprinkles late friday. we'll talk more about the within and next week which is a completely different weather pattern which i join you upstairs. coming up a major break-
through designed to keep you safe on the rails. we'll show you how metro's new system works for you. >> also ahead tonight. >> reporter: it's the camera flash no driver likes to see in their rear view mirror. now there are cameras watching the speed cameras. i'm bob barnard. i'll explain what this is all about. >> and later a crash claims an entire family from maryland, the chain reaction leading up to the tragedy at 11:00. [ romney ] this president can ask us to be patient.
this president can tell us it was someone else's fault. but this president cannot tell us that you're better off today than when he took office. [ female announcer ] here in virginia, we're not better off under president obama. his defense cuts threaten over one hundred thirty thousand jobs, lowering home values, putting families at risk. the romney plan? tax cuts for middle class families. north american energy independence. create over three hundred forty thousand new jobs for virginia. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approved this message.
fairfax county police are looking for thieves stealing thousands of dollars from people living at a inova cardiac care center. someone installed this skig in detectives believe that skimmer has been in place since late august. there are four victims known but it's believed there are more out there. more speed cameras popping up across the region. it's no secret they aren't popular, but prince george's county police say recently vandals have been targeting the
equipment. their solution? more cameras for the crams. fox 5's bob barnard has this -- cameras. fox 5's bob barnard has this story. >> reporter: that's a speed cram, one of 60 just like it in -- camera, one of 60 just like it in prince george's county and yes, they aren't the most popular things in the world. >> the way the economy is, people are struggling and this is what we get. it's just ridiculous. >> reporter: the one this one just replaced here lingeries track road in bowie was -- here along racetrack road in bowie was destroyed by a vandal. >> i'm glad they did it. >> reporter: in recent months police say six of the county's portable speed cameras have been vandalized. >> that includes everything from spray painting to be shot at. >> reporter: that's why this police officer says they've taken the unprecedented step of
placing a security camera on top of the new speed camera on racetrack road. >> that photographs at the base of the camera to no. 1, record any activity of someone that may try to tamper with the camera and no. 2, to try to dissuade someone from maybe doing that kind of thing. >> reporter: what do you think about that? >> i guess it's a good idea if people are vandalizing them. >> reporter: the speed cameras cost up to $100,000 apiece. >> looking at it from a taxpayer standpoint the more that they tear up, the more taxes come out of my pocket. >> reporter: this is the first, but prince george's county police are promising it won't be the last of these cameras watching their speed cameras hoping to have a dozen more up and rolling by the end of the year. major liberati says the speed cameras are positioned for a reason, this one on wind brook drive in clinton put here after two pedestrians were killed on this road this summer. >> our goal is to brick down
the level of accidents -- bring down the level of accidents and fatalities. >> reporter: if someone is going to mess with one of your cameras? >> they're going to get locked up. >> reporter: in bowie, maryland, bob barnard, fox 5 news. drivers are getting a break in montgomery county. there are no longer late fees on speed or red late camera tickets after a major judge advised county leaders charging the fees violated state law. montgomery county has 56 fixed speed cameras, 20 portable one, six speed camera vans. a major break-through for metro, the transit agency now has a monitoring system to detect problems on the rails in realtime. the system was created in response to the red line train crash three years ago that killed nine people. that crash was blamed on a failure in a train control system that went undetected. fox 5's sherri ly has the story. >> reporter: in the months after the june, 2009 red line train crash federal investigators uncovered a series of problems with metro's
track circuits and automatic train control system or atc. following the crash the national transportation safety board made developing a realtime monitoring system an urgent recommendation. now metro has one. >> there's a problem in the atc system in terms of where the trains are located. it alerts us right away. >> reporter: this animation shows what happened in the 2009 crash. notice as the front train enters the faulty track circuit, the computer system fails to detect it and automatically accelerates the next train as if there is no other train on the track causing the collision. having a realtime monitoring system in place now could prevent another deadly accident. . >> it really watches this system to see that a train that is moving along suddenly doesn't disappear from the system. >> reporter: prior to this no such realtime monitoring system
existed, not at metro or anywhere in the country. >> that technology makes you feel like those kind of accidents won't occur in the future. >> to see them i'm 100% sure that it's going to work as it's supposed to. i'm a little bit skeptical. >> reporter: the system is a major step toward returning the rail system to automatic train control. trains have been operating in manual mode since the crash which required slower speeds and riders complained of jerking rides. >> doing entirely manual control sounds rather obsolete. >> reporter: metro won't say when it will return to automatic mode. >> certainly this is a step forward in that direction. >> reporter: it still has other ntsb recommendations to complete, but they have now cleared a major hurdle. metro first developed a prototype for this realtime monitoring system in october, 2009, shortly after the red line train crash. it took a year and a half of
testing with the current system that is now up and running to make sure that it works. in the web center sherri ly, fox 5 news. up next mitt romney makes his way back o battle ground virginia. his rally came on the heels of controversial comments, got off to a rocky start today. we'll show you what happened. anncr: this casino's in west virginia.

>> northern virginia could well determine who the next president is and i hope you make that decision to get me elected. [ cheering and applause ] >> reporter: romney said he would start the rally with a moment of silence for u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three others killed in libya but did not after being heckled. >> the tragedy to lose such a wonderful -- wonderful people that have been so wonderful and appreciate their service for the country. >> reporter: a man in the crowd yelled at the governor accusing him of politicizing the libyan killings and demanding that romney apologize. the man was shouted down by the crowd and quickly removed. >> i would offer a moment of silence, but one gentleman doesn't want to be silenced, so we're going to keep on going. >> reporter: from there romney turned to the economy which he says is not turning around fast enough and the current president who he says needs to be turned out of office. >> how in the world can he go before a democrat convention and speak to the nation and off

>> reporter: the group is considering a lawsuit and other legal options to halt the ban, but until then the law is scheduled to go into effect in march of next year. one person on the city's board of health did abstain from voting this morning saying he is still skeptical. the other eight board members all voted to approve the ban. in new york julie banberis fox news. >> we asked our facebook fans to write in. carey wrote maybe this will make someone consider the health risks of that supersized soda and sebrina wrote this is america. if the public has high demand for big sugary drinks, they should be allowed to spend their money on the drinks. we've all heard one person's junk is another person's treasure. fox 5's beth parker has the story. >> reporter: a great story that begins at a flea market in west virginia where a woman

clouds will come in during the morning. this is what we're watching tomorrow night, probably pretty late now, 9:00, 10:00, 11:00, this frontal boundary will try to cross the district. it's got some showers with it, a pretty skinny band, more substantial moisture over texas where they've been so drought stricken. this is a good heavy amount of moisture. this part will move along the gulf coast giving them a bit more rain. at the surface high pressure will try to hang in there one more day, the last little edge of the ridge hanging in for the metro area giving us a nice day, but the front will barge through. there will only be spotty showers with the front, maybe some sprinkles. that moves through in the overnight hours and we're back to good stuff saturday. this time saturday the high will be off to our west, so we get the north breeze and a mix of sun and clouds, but a really nice day, the kind of day that will get you inspired to get out and do those projects outside, don't have to rake the leaves yet, but maybe do some
